[metro-video id=”1945078″] Some nine years after MTV left a Justin Bobby shaped hole in our lives, the ultra-preened, ultra-privileged cast of The Hills is back. The show is set to remind us that even the prettiest and richest among us have loser ex-boyfriends, unbearable bosses and four bedroom LA condos with pool houses too small for our roommates. That’s right, on June 24th, Speidi, Audrina, Whitney, and everyone’s favourite combat-boots-at-the-beach-wearing lothario, Justin Bobby, will return to our screens, complete with new dramas, their own actual children, and uh, Mischa Barton? It may be difficult to imagine The Hills – with its white-washed, blonde-highlighted, trust-funded version of Los Angeles – being made in 2019 In a time when Juicy Couture tracksuits are literally couture and TV execs are tripping over themselves to reboot TV reboots, how will the show fair in the era of Instagram, geo-tagged locations and austerity? Sure there will be ‘oh my god I didn’t know she was going to be here’ moments, as well as social media commentary, branded clothing deals, and umpteen product placements (Blackberry handset revival pending), but what of the show’s actual content? The 14 year old fashion worshipping, Chanel bag craving me would have been thrilled at the news, so when my resounding reaction to its return was ‘meh’, I was shocked. Maybe watching rich people complain wasn’t entertaining anymore. The Hills arrived on our screens in 2006, bringing with it shiny LA aspirations and meritocratic views of adulthood success. It may be difficult to imagine The Hills – with its white-washed, blonde-highlighted, trust-funded version of Los Angeles – being made in 2019 (Picture: Amy Sussman/Getty Images) Here were just-out-of-high-school young adults, with seemingly accessible entry-level 9-5s or internships that seemed but a well-written email away. Sure, Lauren Conrad may have driven to her new LA life in an 06 plated Mercedes convertible, but there she was, scrambling for safety pins and double-sided-tape on the Teen Vogue closet floor – just like I’d always dreamed of. For a generation who grew up on a diet of Paris Hilton, and an OG Obama ‘Yes We Can’ outlook, The Hills towed the perfect line between real and fake, humble but luxe, working towards something, but hardly working at all. The show was like a guidebook for everything I wanted and was sure adulthood would provide, like a US work permit, a job at a leading fashion magazine, and a floppy-haired boyfriend called Cameron or Brody. But pick it up and place it in 2019, and the very things that made the show so special then are the reasons it might just be unbearable now. There was, of course, its brazen lack of diversity, which may have had viewers convinced that cast members were literally unable to find non-white friends in California, or were perhaps banned from associating with a human above a size 10, but there was also its unspoken and silenced privilege. The cast wasn’t flying around on private jets or holidaying every weekend (in seasons one to three at least), but they were portrayed as struggling through the trials and tribulations of early adulthood, without ever really struggling at all. [metro-zone-post-strip] Heidi didn’t worry about how she would pay her rent after quitting school and being repeatedly late for her job as a club promoter, Lauren’s housemate crisis of 2010 came when she had to share a pool and garden with her once friend (try a kitchen and a shower), and no one ever brought lunch from home. The Hills sparked a phenomenon of glossy-lit reality television, and with its privileged cast changed the way we looked at its stars – not as people to scoff or laugh at, but as people to aspire to be. With adult eyes, it’s easy to see the show for what it is – escapism, but for younger me, that escapism was also an aspiration, and its very specific view of beauty and success was the only one that mattered. That’s not to say the show’s revival is a bad idea, it has a place. I just hope it comes with a huge batch of irony, self-awareness and maybe a ‘rich-parents-not-included’ disclaimer message.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks fell two games short of the NBA Finals. They won big at the NBA Awards. A tearful Giannis Antetokounmpo earned Most Valuable Player honors, Mike Budenholzer won Coach of the Year, and Jon Horst took Executive of the Year on Monday night in Santa Monica. Antetokounmpo, a 24-year-old forward from Greece, beat out Paul George of Oklahoma City and James Harden of Houston, who won last year. Antetokounmpo was a resounding winner. He received 941 points and 78 first-place votes in the balloting — 165 points more than Harden. Harden finished second with 776 points and 23 first-place votes. “MVP is not about stats and numbers, and obviously James Harden had unbelievable numbers and Paul George also, but obviously it’s about winning,” Antetokounmpo said backstage. “We created great habits throughout the season and were able to stick by them, and that’s why we were able to have a chance in every single game we played and were able to win 60 games.” The show had an international flair, with three international players besides Antetokounmpo winning. Antetokounmpo averaged 27.7 points and 12.5 rebounds while earning All-NBA first-team honors this season, his sixth with the Bucks. He led the franchise to the best record in the regular season and the Bucks reached the Eastern Conference finals. Tears rolled down his cheeks as Antetokounmpo thanked his mother Veronica and brothers in the audience at Barker Hanger. He credited his late father for pushing him toward his goals and his teammates and coaching staff for their help. “We started from nothing as a family,” he said, “and we are going to be in every stage that we can be as a family.” Antetokounmpo said backstage that he had vowed to his family he wasn’t going to cry. “When you hear your name up there on the stage and then you realize these years of hard work, what you did in the past, then you start getting emotional,” he said. Budenholzer also got choked up while thanking his family after his second coaching honor. He earned the trophy for the first time with Atlanta in 2015. He guided the Bucks to a 60-22 record in the regular season in his first year with the franchise, leading them to the Eastern Conference finals, where they lost to eventual NBA champion Toronto. “What they did on the court this year, including the playoffs, was special,” Budenholzer said backstage. “We weren’t good enough in the end, but we certainly feel like we have enough talent, we have enough character to be a team that’s playing in the finals and winning a championship.” Budenholzer also coached Team Giannis in the All-Star Game last season. He beat out Denver’s Mike Malone and Doc Rivers of the Los Angeles Clippers. Horst was honored in voting by his fellow NBA executives, while the six biggest awards were determined in voting by a global media panel. Lou Williams was voted the Sixth Man of the Year for the second season in a row and third time in his career, tying former Los Angeles Clipper guard Jamal Crawford. The guard won for the first time in 2015 with Toronto. Williams beat out teammate Montrezl Harrell, with whom he formed the highest-scoring bench duo in NBA history last season, and Domantas Sabonis of Indiana. Williams became the career leader in points off the bench during the season. “This one was different because I kind of went into the season wanting this one. In years past I always just played and lived with whatever happened,” he said. “I felt like this one was going to be a legacy piece.” Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz won Defensive Player of the Year for the second straight season. The 26-year-old center from France beat out Antetokounmpo and George. “I never thought I would be able to do that when I started basketball playing in France,” Gobert said backstage. “I didn’t know an NBA player, I didn’t know nothing about basketball. I was just having fun.” Pascal Siakam of the NBA champion Toronto Raptors earned Most Improved Player. The 25-year-old from Cameroon averaged 16.9 points and started 79 of 80 regular-season games for the Raptors in his third year with the team. Siakam had 26 20-point outings after scoring 20 points in a game only once in his first two seasons. He then scored 32 points in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Siakam beat out De’Aaron Fox of Sacramento and D’Angelo Russell of Brooklyn. Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks easily won Rookie of the Year. The 20-year-old small forward from Slovenia accepted his trophy from RJ Barrett, who went to the New York Knicks as the No. 3 pick in the NBA draft last week. Doncic was the No. 3 pick last year. The other finalists were Deandre Ayton of Phoenix and Trae Young of Atlanta. Larry Bird and Magic Johnson shared the Lifetime Achievement Award. The former rivals took turns holding their trophies while each other spoke. Bird said the NBA is in good hands with today’s talented athletes and he urged them to keep the game the same so it continues on for future generations. Johnson starred for the Los Angeles Lakers and Bird with the Boston Celtics. Mike Conley Jr., newly traded to the Utah Jazz, claimed trophies for Teammate and Sportsmanship of the Year. Conley earned the awards for his 12-year tenure with the Memphis Grizzlies. Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards received the NBA Cares Community Assist honor.
